PDF of Somaclonal and gametoclonal variation

The concept of somaclonal variation is built on this definition. Somaclonal variation in banana: These variants are obtained from both meiotic and mitotic divisions.


Somaclonal and gametoclonal variation. Gametoclonal variation in crop improvement.

Somaclonal and gametoclonal variation

Somaclonal variation of cytoplasmic male sterile lines with wild rice cytoplasm: Variations resulting from segregation and independent assortment. Unlike somatic cells, which in theory should be vzriation within any single plant, the gametes are products of meiosis, governed by Mendel’s laws of segregation and independent assortment.

Clone is defined as a population of a cell or organisms derived from a single cell or common ancestor by mitosis.

Field performance of bermudagrass germplasm expressing somaclonal variation selected for divergent responses to fall armyworm. In vitro haploid production in higher plants 1, For genetic reasons, it is necessary to distinguish between plants regenerated from somatic 2n, somaclones and gametic tissues n, gametoclonesand also between somaclonal and gametoclonal variation.

Cellular and Molecular Biology Letters 7 4: Advances in agricultural biotechnology: The variation observed among plants regenerated from gametic cell cultures is termed as gametoclonal variation.

Journal of Tropical and Subtropical Botany 10 2: There are four distinct sources of variations when referring to gametoclonal variation: The life cycle of higher plants comprises a sporophytic 2n and a gametophytic n generation. In vitro selection of somaclonal and gametoclonal variants for salt tolerance in rice. New variation at the haploid level induced by the chromosome doubling, and iv. Direct expression of both dominant and recessive mutations in the regenerated plants is a distinct feature of gametoclonal variation.


Somaclonal variation and induced mutations in crop improvement Variation is induced either during plant development or in vitro cell cultures, in the mitotic process.

NPTEL :: Biotechnology – Plant Biotechnology

Somaclonal variation in a somaclonal mutant HX-3 of rice. Jiangsu Journal of Agricultural Sciences 18 2: New genetic variations induced by the cell culture procedures. Since plants derived from gametic cells are usually haploid but to retain the variatiom chromosome number should be doubled.

Gametoclonal variation in crop plants. New variation induced at the diploid level, resulting in heterozygosity.

Gametoclonal variation in crop plants [1998]

Gametoclonal variation in pepper. Biotechnology for solving agricultural problems: The concept of gametoclonal variation evolved from variahion of somaclonal variation. Both somaclonal and gametoclonal variations were detected in cultured cells and regenerated plants for morphological, biochemical characteristics, and chromosome number and structure.
